Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva 2015

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Strawberry and red currant aromas on this delicate floral and fruity nose. Expansive and juicy palate of initially bright cherry fruit with chewy tannins following and dominating the experience with a support of tart red fruit.

The wine was a beautiful color in the glass - clear ruby to sapphire. I could't get much of the nose. A little light and thin in the mouth. Complex, refined flavors, cherries dominate but the fruit lags behind a bit - after it was open for a couple of hours there was a hint of juniper berry but it was fleeting. It did go well with the pork roast we had with it, but the alcohol prevailed too much for me overall. This wine spends 24 months in casks of French and Austrian oak of varying sizes, followed by a period of at least four months in the bottle before release. A nice wine but I wouldn't search it out again before trying others. About $30 US a bottle.

Saturated red. Spicy nuances of bay leaf, oregano, and clove complement dark cherry and underbrush aromas. Suave and fine-grained, with lovely inner-mouth energy, this refined Chianti is savory rather than sweet, with flavors of dark fruits and minerals dominating. The long finish shows broad tannins and a suggestion of menthol austerity.

The 2008 Chianti Classico Riserva is gorgeous, especially for a vintage that was not easy. Black cherries, mint, licorice and tobacco are supported by firm yet well-integrated tannins and lively acidity, both of which should allow the wine to age gracefully for a number of years. The 2008 could still use another year or two to soften, but it is gorgeous, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2018.

This tends toward the dry side. Drink now through 2018. 4,500 cases made. BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 88 Points
